Lima
Founded in 1535 by Spanish explorer Francisco Pizarro, Lima represents an interesting blend of modern attractions and preserved colonial architecture, much of it clustered in the World Heritage-listed city center.
Lima is known for historic sites, museums, shopping, nightlife, and parks. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: don't miss a visit to Miraflores, tour the pleasant surroundings at Circuito Magico del Agua, steep yourself in history at Huaca Pucllana, and take a leisurely stroll along Miraflores Boardwalk.

To see where to stay, maps, and other tourist information, read our Lima trip itinerary site .

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airport is Jorge Chávez International Airport. Expect a daytime high around 81°F in February, and nighttime lows around 70°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 5th (Mon) so you can travel back home.
